for them to find ways to create work and create intentions and idea was to create about 300000 of those and i'm pushing you to only create about 25000 of those so it shows that they perhaps have an idea of add a good idea on how to do it and maybe the implementation part is where the needs to focus on to create more those jobs now the other problem of course is that he did mention that you wanted to grow the economy much faster than the population but unfortunately economy only grew at 1.3 percent meaning that most companies were struggling and most of these are small medium enterprise companies and therefore they have to close down and that is quite unfortunate but some of the things that you did do was to implemented the idea of bringing in licenses after companies in less than 6 months meaning it should take you just about one month for you to have a license and for you to operate here in south africa and one of the other good things that he did that everybody is talking about is the new appointment of the s.
